I love surfing and enjoy spending my summer holidays in Cornwall having fun in the sea. I did lots of research into the ocean and found that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish, which is frightening. My painting is made up of all the plastic that may find its way into the sea spoiling our environment and our lives. There are so many plastics in my piece that people enjoy spotting but it also shows the fun and the beauty of the ocean.
